's about the 1968 election. the democratic electorate was split. they were not unified behind their candidate. on the right, southern white democrats who were against civil rights, they were being peeled off to vote for george wallace, the symbol of proud segregation. also, different problem for the democrats. people hated the vietnam war. and the president at the time was a democrat, lyndon b. johnson. so if you were against the war, as most americans at that point were -- this is the gallop polling on the war -- the number of people who thought it was a mistake -- if you were against the war as increasingly everybody was, you were so the psyched to vote for lbj's successor. so the democrats were losing their appeal in the south because of racism, and they were losing the anti-war vote. the republican candidate tried to take advantage of that split, and was this handsome devil. nixon in 1968 was running against a democratic party that he knew was split. he was, in response, pledging to get rid of the draft. and he claimed to have a plan to end the war. he argued that if you w
reince priebus unveiling a 100-page taups that breaks down the failures of the 2012 election and the report is a harsh assessment of the challenges facing the gop. >> there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary and debate process needed improvement. so there's no one solution. there is a long list of them. >> priebus says the republican national committee should do a few things immediately about some of the problems spelled out in the report, starting with a $10 million outreach program targeting african-american latino and younger voters, a rt shoer primary season, fewer debates and an earlier convention. more emphasis on early voting. an as that he can of voter turnout where democrats have fared much better. and the report also suggests using more hollywood celebrities to help change perceptions. and it plans to rip a page from the obama play book by launching a complete revamp of digital technology. senior editor mark murray is here with more on what th
preferred romney over obama. >> trying to influence an american election. >> there's a lot of water under the bridge. >> i think it is absolutely outrageous. >> you only tease the ones you love. >> some republicans coil at the party plans for the future. >> i know what our principles are. >> the chairman is in the hot seat. >> i am looking to get into communities in the hundreds. >> show up any time. >> i know what our principles are. >> it is what you say and do when you get there matters most to people. >> our party believes marriage is between one man and one woman. >> they haven't changed their policies. >> house republicans tomorrow vote on the ryan budget. >> notorious paul ryan budget. >> putting out yet again a budget. >> an actual budget, political manifesto or long term liability? >> we are not going to refight the past. >> our budget and your budget contrast. >> what happens next? >>> republican rebranding week continues to go, well, badly. especially if you listen to republicans. >> if any party needed rebooting, our party did, but i don't know, i looked at the press conferenc
because we learned from last year's elections that a decade ago, two decades ago is no longer what some of those states in terms of the electorate has become. and i think you could galvanize your vote if you took some stands in some of those states. >> congressman? >> look, the way the mayor's doing this is the way he ought to do it. i'm a democrat. i want democrats to be in a majority. but there comes a time when politics must not supersede that which is right. the majority of us in this country believes the direction we're going in terms of universal background checks is the right thing to do. if some democrats fall or stand in the way, so be it. i want to be in the majority. it's not fun in the minority. but i also would like to have a society where we're not scheduling almost some kind of tragedy every other month. >> no problem with that at all with me. i agree with you, because the majority is a wonderful thing to have but if we cannot stand up when babies are shot in newtown and children are shot in the streets of chicago, over 500 last year, then what are we in the majority for
"newsroom." i'm suzanne malveaux. up ahead, cyber attacked on a florida election is raising alarms about security at the voting systems across the country. so this attack involved more than 2,500 phantom requests for absentee ballots during the august primary. our chris lawrence who has been digging into this. chris, what do we know, election officials now being able to detect that something happened, something was wrong. how did they do that? >> basically two things really jumped out at them, suzanne. they looked at two things. one, the fact that all of these requests were coming from what looked like the same computers. also, they were coming in so quickly they figured no human being could enter that much information that quickly. those were two big red flags. then they started to look further and determine that the internet -- the i.p. addresses of these computers were blocked. once investigators were able to dig in and look at them, it turned out that all of these i.p. addresses were going through what's called an anonmiser. in india and the uk sort of a way to wash your tracks on th
win elections. that steve core knacky is 1-1. they hope to reverse the massive losses. over 6%, i'm told, of black voters back mitt romney. 6%, and that number seems high to me. you cannot win with number like that especially when people of color will soon be the majority in this country. also, our plans to improve communication wet voers while also cutting the number of presidential debates. why let you know what you really think. they want to move the convention earlier in the summer so they can tap into cash sooner. that's a great idea. and there is a push to close the digital media and tech gaps and all this sounds easily achievable if you listen to preebus. >> we know we have problems. we've identified them and we're implementing the solutions to fix them. to be clear, our principles are sound. we will do a better job of connecting with people, to our principles, showing how we can help every american climb the economic ladder. especially in communities we haven't been in a long time, but b what it means to be paubl. the rnc cannot and will not write off any demographic, comm
in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to talk about that and that could really hurt them. >> do you think that will be the case in 2016? if you look at what has happened since gavin newson signed gay marriage in law, he performed the ceremonies himself there and made it legal, look how much things have ink changed in one decade. do you think it
. >> of course that is exactly what the strategy seems to have been in the last two election cycles is to write off vast swaths of the population. jonathan, i want to talk about the politics of this before we have to go. that is, obviously on the democratic party side, i mean, this is kind of a, you know, no brainer gate issue i would say for someone seeking the nomination on the democratic ticket. on the republican side, though, i'm not sure i agree with karl rove that the person who is their nominee would be an advocate. it certainly seems like it's going to be a much tougher issue in 2016 for someone seeking national office, given the numbers that chad was just talking about. >> very tough for someone on the republican side to not be in favor of marriage equality? >> correct. i mean, given the fund-raising issues. this is an area where republicans are raising a lot of money. it's obviously an area where vast swaths of the population have changed their opinion. >> right. >> i think it's going to be a harder position for republican in 2016. >> well, yes. if not 2016, certainly by 2020. look, i
to the specifics. watch for the senators from red states up for re-election and the pressure is greatest on them. they are away two weeks now from washington, back home, and there will be pressure on them. they will hear from their constituents about what to do from this. if you don't have much support, if any, among republicans, you need those democrats to get it through. >> hey, mark, give me a sense of harry reid's role in this. he wants to keep that title senate majority leader. navigating through these ice floes of this. >> it's already on the side of those who would like to see a large package, including a pretty big risk background check provision. it's not clear to me what more opponents can be to put pressure on senator reid. senator reid has a long history with the nra. they did not support him in his re-election race and i think he is looking for a path that not only protects his own views on gun control and not only tries to accommodate the white house but try to protect the majority. i think he is very stensive not just on guns but a range of issues too. all of these democrats are u
today. and you were the first, as we said, iraq war vet to be elected to congress. when you hear about these casualties today on the ten-year anniversary, what is your reaction? do you believe that it needs to be more part of the discourse there in the beltway? >> without a doubt. it is not part of the discourse because most folks don't have skin in the game. less than 1% of americans have served in iraq or afghanistan. it goes to your point. we should be talking about this. it is the defining political issue of the last ten years. and it is just a colossal, strategic failure of the bush administration to know that we had almost 4,500 of america's best and brightest killed in action, over 32,000 wounded in action, and over 100,000 iraqis dead for an unnecessary war. and a war that should basically never have happened and also a war that we put our troops into harm's way, basically over a religious civil war without the amount of troops that the military generals asked for. >> what do you remember when you see this piece of news that we're reporting today? what do you remember back to t
challenge senate minority leader mitch mcconnell in the general election, however, tonight right here on this program, i am making a personal plea to ashley judd. i am urging you for the sake of the democratic party, for the sake of the country, ignore the former flphilandering president, throw your hat in the race. if you do, i'll show more ads like this one. >> you know what this country needs, an independent voice for obama. >> i am committed to president obama and vice-president biden. i think he's a brilliant man. he is now able to flower more as the president i knew he could be. >> someone who will never forget where she came from. >> and tennessee is home. >> kentucky. >> is home. >> someone who knows what's good for us. >> a lot-- >> her own grandmother says she's a hollywood liberal. isn't that what we need? ashley judd, an obama following, hollywood liberal from tennessee, kentucky. >> tennessee is home. >> and run, ashley, run, and the soon to be great senator from tennessee. fox news contributor. >> did you say former. >> tamara holder and jedidiah. >> i'm in charge. >> ob
to encourage him, saying it was his legacy, his historic role to have real elections and turn power over at the end of his term. the other issues, tough issues involved one resolution today, which was the turnover of the bagram from american control to afghan control, a big sticking point with president karzai. i asked both of them about the fact that there are high-value detainees, very dangerous prisoners, that the u.s. considers very dangerous, now turned over to afghan control, did the u.s. have veto power over afghan release of these prisoners? kerry said he was confident that they would have consultations. and that they would not be release of these kinds of prisoners, karzai made it clear that this is matter of afghan sovereignty. he said the u.s. is going to share intelligence, that the military had worked out sharing of information, and that they would be consulting, but obviously there's no american veto any more over whether or not these high-value prisoners, suspected taliban figures will be released. there's a lot of talk about the taliban. mutual agreement that it is a good
that parachutes into communities four months before an election. while that is how we operated years and years, and done well as compared to ourselves. in comparison to the other side, the obama campaign lived in these communities for years. the relationships were deep. they were authentic. >> he is absolutely right. >> yeah. priebus announced 10 million dollar plan funded by the rnc that would focus on establishing permanent footholds in african-american and asian communities. they would begin their campaign sooner. >> a great idea too. he was talking about a june or july convention. >> right. >> less debates. >> less debates. >> i think it's great. >> for the next presidential election cycle which makes a lot of sense. maybe seven or eight of them instead of 23. to stop the party from cannibalizing itself later on. it's sort of looking like rebranding. >> what is wrong? you don't like that idea? >> i think it will be hard to enforce. >> why is that? >> a lot of media organizations that want to do debates and the party can't stop those organizations from offering to do debates and candidates
. >>> the woman that lost the 2008 election and the man that helped lose the 2012 election are at each other's throats. >>> and a shouting match breaks out at cpac. the issue? slavery. i do a lot of research on angie's list before i do any projects on my own. at angie's list, you'll find reviews written by people just like you. i love my contractor, and i am so thankful to angie's list for bringing us together. angie's list -- reviews you can trust.

government. and is somewhat weakened after a tough re-election fight. so from the white house perspective, he comes, the president comes here at a pretty good time to try to reach out to the israeli people. try to let them believe that he really does care about israel. that he has their back. they've been very much supported by the united states militarily. the iron dome missile defense system. but for some reason israeli people, perhaps because of the president's 2009 speech in cairo. there is a feeling in israel that he has not shown them the love. so he's going to try to do that on this trip. he's going to go to the historic founder of israel, the hertzel monument. to show that he doesn't believe that israel's roots began only after the holocaust. and that he agrees with israel's timeline that it goes back to millennium. he's going to see the dead sea skrols. he'll pay homage to israel's deep rots and go to the west bank, go to ramallah and speak with the leader of the palestinians, try to get more of a warmer relationship. then they're talking about iran. and iran is front and center. he
was elected chairman back in 2011, was very aggressive about reaching out to all the different affinity groups or ancillary groups within the republican party, including log cabin republicans. he was the first chairman to make it clear that the corporate culture, as soon as ince priebus came in, was to be inclusive and welcoming. he took a lot of hits for that during his first term as chairman -- >> let me in here. don't filibuster me. none of that played out. we heard none of that in the last election. we heard the exact opposite from the gop in the last election. >> well, what you're talking about is you're talking about the platform which was an anchor around our neck during the election cycle. that was very clear amongst many in leaderships which is why in project is very important. it was a very pragmatic approach, very similar to an after-military option. you do an after-action review. the party was very honest about our weaknesses and why we aren't attracting the voters that we should attract. it's very healthy. this is the first chairman to actually recognize the lgbt members of the pa
days, three days before the election and scare the with its out of everybody. and a lot of these politicians know that. and there's a lot of fear of that. and a lot of concern about that. the truth is not going to come out. that's not what the letter's going to say when it hits. and the campaign they're going to run will say, they want to take away their guns, they want registration so the federal government can come in and take your guns away. that's what the debate will be. >> governor dean, as someone that had a strong rating from the nra, i want to point to some of the reaction comes from senators who are probably going to have a hard time on the vote on this bill. mark pryor says in a statement, with i don't take gun advice from the mayor of new york city. i listen to arkansans. there's a little bit more room in the statement from senator mary landrieu. senator landrieu has a great deal of respect for mayor bloomberg on a great deal issues, but the senator will be listening closely to her constituents on this issue. you hear that and look at the poll, it is overwhel
finishing first last night in a special election, advancing to a runoff in two weeks in his bid to win a house seat. he picked up 37% of the vote, well short of the 50% needed to avoid a runoff. sanford calling his victory humbling. >> the voters care about is not my personal journey, what they care about is what am i going to do if elected to watch out for their pocketbook and their wallet. >> sanford was forced to step down as governor after lying about an extramarital affair. if sanford wins next month's special election, he'll face off against democrat elizabeth colbert-bu colbert-bush. >> people love a comeback story, don't they? >> he says he is going to support his sister. >> all right. one more story to tell you about, folks. the man whose 911 call may have prevented a campus massacre at the university of central florida speaking out saying how it all went down. police say suspect james cumaran pulled the fire arm at the ufc dorm when his roommate came out to investigate the suspect. allegedly pointed an assault rifle right at him. here's what he told anderson cooper. >> i was
in the couple of months leading up to a presidential election, but they need it year round, and they need it in places, the chairman says, where they normally don't go like blue states and like urban areas. it's kind of obvious why they are doing this. go back to last november. the republicans didn't win back the white house. they didn't win back the senate, and they definitely had a problem with younger voters and with minority voters. mitt romney doing very well at all with either of those groups. that's why you're seeing this, and $10 million is a lot of money, don. that's why they hope they can make some changes here. >> and if you're in the battleground states, i was in a battleground, you were there as well, they are taking a page out of obama playbook because they were -- they had been in those communities. their ground games were amazing. they knew the people in those communities and they had personal relationships and that's how they won and today reince priebus admitted that as he was announcing that they are going to announce his plan come tomorrow. what will -- what will go be
and that philosophy is viewed by about 57 of colorado's 62 elected sheriffs. i just think that, for instance, there's no way for me to know that a magazine is in possession of an individual we come in contact, was acquired before or after the ban. and i don't believe that a magazine capacity limitation will solve the problems we're facing with just about 15 minutes of practice, sir, i could have you -- you're doing a magazine exchange, in about two seconds. so the mass shooters could still fire the same number of rounds with only a limited extra number of seconds. >> right. but with respect, mr. sheriff, you're in a state, which has just brought in these laws. and one of the reasons they brought them in was what happened at that movie theater in aurora in colorado. where a deranged young man called holmes walked in and had four weapons, including assault rifles, and including 100 bullet magazines. now, you can't tell me that he could not have been stopped earlier if he hadn't had a magazine with 100 bullets in. and that's the point of this, isn't it? >> well, certainly, on the surface, it is. but,
democratic senators who voted against the budget plan, all of whom are up for re-election and one, frank lautenberg from new jersey, he didn't vote at all. meanwhile, politico reporting senator tim johnson from south dakota not planning to run again in 2014. that puts yet another democratic seat in play. another notable democratic senator planning to step down, michigan's carl levin. yesterday on her facebook page, former governor jennifer granholm announced not to run for his seat. >>> and the president is on his way home right now. president obama spent four days in the middle east meeting with israeli, palestinian and jordanian leaders. his last stop to jordan's ancient city of petra, known to some as one of the seven wonders of the world. known to others as home to indiana jones' excellent adventures. >>> president obama and his team are enroute, home from the middle east. but they left one member of their party behind. secretary of state john kerry. martin fletcher is live for must tel aviv with more. martin, good to see you, sir. who is kerry planning on meeting with? >> reporter:
. >> if these experts who keep losing elections, you keep getting rehired raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck up or stay in the truck. buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> oh, that did not go over too well with karl rove, the man known as the architect of george w. bush's presidential campaigns. >> i appreciate her encouragement that i ought to go home to texas. i'd be ennewsed if i ran for office to have her support. but i don't think i'm particularly good candidate, sort of a balding fat guy. and second of all, i'd say if i did run for office and win, i'd serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office midterm. >> ouch. our question, in a i'm threat cal match-up, who wins over the republican faithful, karl rove or sarah palin? >> sarah palin. simply because she's just more likeable. you may think she's an idiot, you may think she has no idea what she's talking about, but there is something about her charisma that attracts a large nu
a runnoff election we're told next month. if he pulls through on the republican side and this is interesting, he would then face his democratic challenger, elizabeth colbert bush. she is the sister of political sat at that rift, stephen coal barrett. that would be an interesting race. it would take over the seat left vacant by tim scott, who was appointed to the u.s. senate. watch that south carolina race. >>> all right. back to the drawing board now in the cyprus after lawmakers reject a wildly unpopular plan to raid people's personal bank accounts. you can imagine why that didn't go over too well as part of their effort to secure a bailout from the eurozone and the imf without their help the tiny island's bank sector would most certainly collapse. that could potentially threaten other national economies. these things are often domino effects as you know. greg palkot is live in london. what is the latest on this deal, greg. >> reporter: you're right, martha. people are scrambling blink to prevent another way for cyprus to go bankrupt and dragging rest of europe down with it. in the cypriot
them to be free and freely elect and we're not happy-- >> and so we're going to give them-- >> we're not happy with the palestinian's decision to elect hamas, but we want those people to have freedom and them to decide. >> we're giving terrorists money. colonel west, why would we give terrorists money? >> well, i don't think we should be giving terrorists money. i think that that is going back to a chamberlain type of foreign policy appeasement. and originally whsecretary of state kerry went to egypt, wanted to meet with him and he refused to and it was not covered, you had protests in the united states of america, in egypt for supporting terrorists and the same in the west bank, leslie referred to, they're defacing pictures of president obama, throwing shoes at it and believe that the supposed to be quote, unquote insinuated in cairo have been turned back again. and when you talk about a two-state solution, you have to have a willing peace partner on the other side and not just that there's not really a two-state. you're talking potentially three-state solution because hamas and
caskill, a red state democrat who just got re-elected, now six years away from being re-elected. you know, she could have done it six months ago and didn't. >> it's true. but even president obama just came to this. >> true. >> may of last year. and let's look back to may of last year when he did this. there was a lot of commentary about whether this would hurt him in the election. we now have gotten past one presidential election. it didn't hurt him. people thought it helped him. so i think that's really taken some of the sting out of democrats, certainly, coming out. and even republicans. >> and danielle, for your party, for democrats, hillary clinton last -- a week ago monday, a week ago today, came out and said i support gay marriage. is there a penalty in the party for being more of a late arriver on this issue? >> i don't think there will be. i think what matters at the end of the day, you arrive at the right position. so even if you were the first or last, i don't think it necessarily matters. but i do think that, you know, there is a difference between parties. and i think that democrat
have a pretty good chance? >> she has a so-so chance. the primary election within her party was sunday. so that's over with. but what she's doing right now is her own party to get reinstated on the ballot. she says she was discriminated against, a victim of slander. and there's no proof she did what is alleged, she should be allowed to run. >> that's the right point. none of this has been proven, how does she get banned? on what ground? >> the mexican system is not banning her. what happened is her own party after learning of these allegations, this is the p.a.n., most conservative party in mexico, the party itself said because of the allegations we would not like you to run and essentially stopped her from running and took her name off the ballot. but again the general election is in july and she still has a chance if the court system, the judicial system in mexico moves fast enough. >> so she's saying -- or they're saying she would simply be a distraction and maybe she needs to think about backing it up. >> i had an opportunity to speak with her. and what she was telling me is, liste
into the ballot box as a politician. there's a general election coming up here in pakistan. the first time potentially that one democratic government would hand over to another democratic government, believe it or not, for the first time in country's history. he believes that he's going to be a key player. but given the muted response he's had to his landing here so far and very little media coverage, it would seem that they have an uphill battle to make that race to the front so to speak here in the election coming up here. he -- as we said, he was unchallenged in the past, but now he wants to try and challenge all the big boys in pakistan's politics. well, it remains to be seen if he can manage that. >> well, that's the thing. he comes back and says he's coming back to in his words save the country. and yet he hasn't got a seat. he hasn't got much of a chance of getting 170 seats in the election one would imagine. meanwhile, what are the charges he's facing? and then as we said he's a guy that the taliban wants to take out. >> yes. absolutely. a couple of reality checks there aren't ther
all of a sudden. you get re-elected everybody loves each other. you know. absolutely. and i think that you have to remember that the prime minister of israel just formed a very fragile coalition government, and so the president, it's very shaky ground in israel, as well, in terms of his approval among israeli jews. many of them are sort of neutral about president obama. they don't dislike him but they don't adore him. and so for each man there is a big reason to show that they are in good for the other guy, to get some credit here in israel. and so, yes, there is good reason for each to show that all those old wounds are well on their way toward healing. nobody here is going to pretent that they don't have troubles. but they are showing that they can get along. >> keep looking for those smiles. thanks to jessica yellin in tel aviv this morning. we will come back to you over the course of the morning. this went from what was going to be a symbolic visit to one where all of a sudden there are urgent matters to discuss with the specter of chemical weapons possibly being used in syria

. >> sean: a political point. no, but he's doing things-- >> pursuing an election, and it's very worrisome and hurting americans. >> sean: 2014? >> 2014, hey, folks, that's what -- i don't care what he does when you're looking at him now when the poll ratings are going down. that's his objective. he gambled that he could change the muslim world and the fact is, we have tolerated -- i remember when the members of this administration, members of congress saying the muslim brotherhood they're not bad. they are poison and we're seeing that in egypt and it's a-- you know, you have to make a tough stand. >> sean: liz, you know, when he you say that the israelis are the descendents of pigs and apes, 9/11 truther, this is not hard to figure out and predict. the media got it wrong, the president got it wrong and a few of us here got it right. you being one of them, i was one of them. i don't know where you were. >> it's worse than what pat is saying. i don't think that this president is watching the united states decline for political gain. i think he doesn't mind if the united states declines. i t
for their vote is important. we were six million of the electorate this last election. there was only a three million-vote margin between mitt romney and president obama. there's also some reference to the policy there. but it's unclear exactly what that would mean or where it would go. look, this just falls within the narrative of everything we're seeing in this country. as more and more republicans, more and more democrats and the american public evolves and has evolved quite quickly on this issue. and it's time quite frankly for our elected leaders in washington to catch up with the rest of the country. >> rock on, human rights campaign president, chad griffin, thanks for coming on the show. >> pleasure to be here, thank you, alex. >>> hash tag now is the time, it could be mantra for middle east peace. we will ask the new republican's ben birnbaum about the fierce urgency of a two-state solution when he joins us live from tel aviv, just ahead. hey, our salads.

in elections, put out a press release blasting her, saying she would rather be in washington as a right wing celebrity than solving problems back in minnesota for minnesota's middle class. remember, she got a scare back in november. her election, her congressional election was closer than she expected and democrats are hoping to beat her this time. >> we certainly appreciate the response. it doesn't seem to back up the claim, though, that this health care will literally kill women, children and senior citizens. a lot of the things she's claiming right now about the government will be able to select who gets care or not, you could say about insurance companies right now, choosing who gets coverage or not. >> that's a great point. it doesn't back that up. she and other republicans, you know, have argued for years they believe obama care will ultimately mean people will lose their insurance and their health will be in danger. of course, she took that to a whole other level by saying that they would literally be killed, which you're right, she doesn't address in the statement. >> appreciate it.
of congress losing elections before people in washington will realize that the politics on this thing have changed. the ground is shifting underneath the politicians right now. they don't see it, but the ground is shifting and as i say, it's going to have to take a concerted effort for many of these elected officials to lose office before they realize the public wants something very serious out of this. >> as i just said, julian. we put the phone number for congress and we invite members of the public, please do call your congressional members. just today weave seen a slew of gun-related headlines. three dead at quantico marine base. a 13 month old baby shot in the head in her stroller. a drunk teenage boy shot dead after entering the wrong home by mistake and yet what's happening? the people who say more gun, fewer laws, they are the ones today who appear to be winning this argument. the thing is that you have to understand -- i hope people can appreciate this and this is the disenchantment piece, the nra for the times they want to out to members is a small group of folks with a lot of po
or she would like it to be a better country. you think? there are some that get managed to be elected to congress who secretly hope to bring this country down. i suppose that's possible. but don't count on a bunch hearings or high profile probes to do the job of finding them. i have to say that we've been here before. been there before. congresswoman bachmann, been there done that. nobody who remembers him wants very much to see it all happen again. thank god. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show," starts now. >> good evening americans. welcome to "the ed show." i'm eric michael dyson. after a decade of war,er with still uncovering lies that led us into conflict with iraq. turns out union busting governor john kay sick won't support unions either. ceo of starbucks serves up support for minimum wage increase. reverend jesse jackson joins me on public schools. >>> but first, bowling for columbine, i will ask michael moore why the need for gun control is even more urgent. this is "the ed show," and as ed would say, let's get to work. >>> we begin with an
the democrats and republicans you would expect but the conservative democrats, the ones who are up for re-election, in 2014. we're right in that cycle already. we are smack in the middle of the 2014 election cycle. the democrats from north carolina, louisiana, arkansas, west virginia, will have trouble getting behind a gun control law with universal background checks if the nra is not fully behind it. >> ask marty, some democrats as in the case in illinois are learning just how hard it is going to be with folks like michael bloomberg spending a ton of money in other states to make sure that his version of gun control is heard. let's be honest. michael bloomberg is the quintessential example of a plutocrat. for democrats, he is the right kind. when democrats remember that they're supposed to oppose this kind of thing, the influence of a single donor spending million of dollars to influence and tip the scales, when they remember that they're supposed to want sort of more democratic political progress and process, individual donors donating to a cause like they do to the nra. when they remember this,
on campus. last november many americans were stunned that president obama won the election despite all the economic chaos but when you understand the liberal indoctrination on college campuses, you begin to see how that is contributing to the move left. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. joining us from rawght, mary katharineham and juan williams. both fox news analysts. yuan, what do you think about the point that being influenced by college campuses? >> i don't think you are right, bill. i think back to the 60's. i think the college campuses were afire with liberal madness at that point. you know, anive at this war protest. sexual revolution and the like and richard next son won -- nixon won the white house. in the 80's college campuses were very liberal but lots of young people liked ronald reagan answered obviously had two terms in the white house. i guess i disagree with that idea. in fact, on college campuses today i think kids are pretty conservative. >> bill: here is why you are desperately wrong, juan. two wreensz. anti-vietnam was a very narrow cast
it instead of the military it's war that is waged secretly with no expectation that our elected officials will even admit that it's happening and there's no expectation that it will be overseen by congress the way that war is overseen by congress. this isn't armed services. this is intelligence and it's responsible for keeping safe the family jewels, right? one of the interesting d. krfrmgs dynamic. dynamics is that the cia maybe doesn't want this job any more. that although they have been ramped up to become a covert air force not everything is psyched up about it. after petraeus had to resign, the acting director who took over was described in the press as concerned about the overmilitarization of the cia. john brennan who president obama appointed to run the cia in his second term, he told the washington post in october that he too was interested in the cia getting out of the drone business, saying essentially that that is war and not intelligence and as such it should be done by the pentagon and not by the people who are supposed to be our nation's spies. well, that transition, that c

's not a problem if you're a governor who has got to think about election in a few years. >> no. it will help him an awful lot. but i tell you what, if you are a state rep up from where i'm from. >> totally different. >> somebody says, hey, you want to support president obama's obama care provision on medicaid? ask charlie crist. the correct answer is, no, i did not. yeah, ask charlie crist. >> we don't have time for michele bachmann? >> no, we don't. maybe later. >> dr. brzezinski is coming up. >> dr. zbigniew brzezinski will be here and reince priebus and senator chris coons and jean chatzky. >> they are both good guys. >> steele said he beat him in a cage match. >> really? >> as if anybody was wondering. >> can "morning joe" host that? >> i would like to. like they are doing over on "headline news." what is happening there? i have no idea. somebody asked me about that. i don't even know what is going on, but apparently there is some sex trial going on. do you guys know? who is the name? >> i don't know. >> arias. what is the name? >> if barnicle doesn't know it, nobody does. >> jodi arias. >>
elections? >> well it is critical. you stop and think about this. of course let's focus here on the senate, not the house. what you have is, you have i think it is 10 democratic senators who are unaring in states that were won by mitt romney. so you have them very cautious about upsetting gun owners and upsetting powerful forces, forces with dollars to spend on campaigns like the nra. gun hobbyists who of course vote and turn out in big numbers behind this issue. this is an issue that will bring out voters to the polls. this is why you had not seen any motion on gun control before newtown. the president despite the concern of people who are gun enthusiasts had not taken any action. feinstein, senator feinstein had not taken any action even though the assault weapons ban had expired just about 10 years earlier. so you see the change. jenna: let's a little bit about that because dianne feinstein says she is disappointed in this. she said if you think congress would listen and clearly listened to the nra. a lot of fingers point to the nra as the reason behind the fact this part of the legisla
's going to face the republican runoff winner in the may 7 special election. >>> michele bachmann nearly ran through the halls of congress to avoid some pretty tough questions from one of our own, cnn's dana bash. there you have it. take a peek. this is what you call at haste. dana bash was asking michele bachmann about the comments she made at the conservative conference cpac. mrs. bachmann used president obama of very frivolous and lavish spending on a lifestyle within the white house. have a listen to how she characterized it. >> now we find out that there are five chefs on air force one. there are two projectionists who operate the white house movie theater. they regularly sleep at the white house in order to be readily available in case the first family wants a really, really late show. we are also the ones who are paying for someone to walk the president's dog. >> all right. so i'm going to re-join that story in a moment. but i want that take you right back to israel right now, because that news conference we've been awaiting with president shimon peres and united states president,
four months after the election and still needs florida and ohio to win. >> and with the house approving congressman paul ryan a budget. >> this budget more than just balanced. >> can we reduce our deficit and debt and still help those who are neediest in america. can we have a safety net that survives and still reduce the deficit? paul ryan says no. >> at least budgets are passing around here for a change. the government's going to have to learn to do more with less, it's not the government's money, it's the people's money. >> the senate democrats are considering a number of balances ever-- >> and house committee chair paul ryan telling us republicans and democrats are still world's apart. well, that is an understatement. we saw that just an hour ago. the democratic-led senate defeating the ryan house budget 40-59. so is there any hope left? here is congressman paul ryan. >> great to see you. >> great it to see you again. >> greta: i want to talk about the budget that passed today, i imagine you're happy. >> we're very happy. we passed a balanced budget and it's important we owe the cou
of peeling off of republicans from the party doctrine on this? >> i think it would take several more election cycles to have any kind of shift at the federal level or the rnc platform if we're measuring that way. i think alex is hitting on an important point -- >> sam -- >> did i do that twice? there is a predicate here, which is the court is often used as something that both parties will organize against when they're outraged about positions unchangeable. but at other times we have seen this throughout history, the court becomes a permission structure to make change. the republicans and the democrats both had very poor records on civil rights and over time, particularly with decisions like brown that were, of course, unanimous for many republicans eventually it became a permission structure. that's why the entire caucus starts voting for the voting rights act and other things. it's a checkered history so i don't mean to simplify it. but if the court goes federal here, i do think it would actually take some of this out of the political space, which could be good if you care about human rights
. the taint of elections. this is the political environment that we live in. and up fortunately, it affects these issues which are incredibly emotional and after newtown, even more so. >> let's turn to immigration. >> the devil is in the details again. we understand after recess, that congressional leaders are supposed to take it up. if not, we understand, if there is some kind of slowdown or impasse, that there is a plan b here at the white house. the president has something ready to hand in a legislation on immigration reform. he wants this to happen this year. and we understand that will happen and just the last couple of days, we understand the president and senior administration officials have been calling leaders on the hill to make sure about other things as well. but to make sure this immigration issue is moving forward. >> chris, what will be the most contentious part of immigration reform? will it be the citizenship issue? >> absolutely. it is the definition of what amnesty is, if you will. this is where i think the distinction without a difference. both sides, i think, are coming
